First published in 1865, Lewis Carroll's endearing tales of an imaginative child's dream world are written with charming simplicity.

While delighting children with a heroine who represents their own thoughts and feelings about growing up, the tale is appreciated by adults as a gentle satire on education, politics, literature, and Victorian life in general.

All the delightful and bizarre inhabitants of Wonderland are here: the White Rabbit and the Cheshire Cat, the hooka-smoking Caterpillar and the Mad Hatter, the March Hare and the Ugly Duchess…and, of course, Alice herself—growing alternately taller and smaller, attending demented tea parties and eccentric croquet games, and observing everything with clarity and rational amazement.

These novels are part of Brilliance Audio's extensive Classic Collection, bringing you timeless masterpieces that you and your family are sure to love.

    " A very whimsical read and I thought it was funny that this little girl was very smart and would try to be logical. A timeless classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry Kokko | 2/10/2014

    " This classic children's tale is darker than the Disney movie. A must read to find out the author's original story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mackie Wood | 2/8/2014

    " I am sorry, i think lewis carroll was going a bit crazy when he wrote this book, such a confusing book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edelhart Kempeneers | 2/7/2014

    " Heel goed, maar... zo kort?! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mariska Reniers | 1/31/2014

    " This book is amazing. It is written as if it were a dream, and the poetry in it, is absolutely fabulous. I'm wondering why I haven't read this book earlier.. This is my new favourite book, it's written very lovely and the story is magnificant. Wow. Amazing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jit Haw | 1/26/2014

    " You will always, ALWAY, learn something new from reading this. Don't ever neglect the masterpieces that LC wrote just cause you watched the damned Disney Movies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katrina Sutton | 1/21/2014

    " I didn't like this story as much as the first story of Alice. I did in fact recognized some of the characters that were put into Disney's cartoon, "Alice in Wonderland", though such as Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, and the talking flowers in the garden. I didn't realize it was actually two stories combined into one until I read both books. All in all, a very creative and inventive story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dick Hall | 1/16/2014

    " I didn't really know what to expect going into is one, but I loved the nonsensical, dreamlike story. I didn't read a whole lot into it, so I look forward to watching the Coursera lectures to see what I missed and moving on to Through the Looking Glass. I also enjoyed Carroll's straight forward prose, which I didn't expect from an 1860's novel, but legal reading has probably jaded me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill Homan | 1/12/2014

    " Forget the Disney version, go for the source material! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 M. Raven Brown | 11/20/2013

    " I liked these books far more than I thought I would. However, I felt like there were parts of TTLG where Dodgson (aka Carroll) seemed to be pining for Alice in a way that made me uncomfortable. All in all, I'm glad I finally read these, but I still am not a fan of the Disney Alice. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pippa222 | 11/12/2013

    " I must admit that this book, which I read as a child, absolutely failed to grab me. One day maybe I will try again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanne O'donnell | 11/3/2013

    " Although this book is imaginative and 'colorful' I never enjoyed it. Too disjointed for me "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taja | 10/19/2013

    " Read it first when I was eight, I have a seventy year old copy with beautiful illustrations that made/make it all the better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Borud | 8/31/2013

    " A fanciful tale to enchant the imagination of young and old alike. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janeb7 | 1/30/2013

    " I thought, this will be better than all of the versions I've seen of this. It's not. I strongly dislike creepy men writing boring children's fiction, it turns out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ailsa Coulden-smith | 10/26/2012

    " This is one of my favourite stories purely because of the wacky and creative imagery. It is fantastically written and all of the Alice in Wonderland books are excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 8/28/2012

    " I mean...what was happening in this damn book? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby | 6/19/2012

    " I was not a fan of alice really at all. In my opinion she cried way to much, and I was having trouble pickig the book up to read because it was basically the same story just retold with different characters. I finished it though because I wanted to say that I had read and finished a classic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 5/17/2012

    " It was fun reading this to my kids. Some parts are incredibly memorable and others are kind of boring. I'd say it's more like a 3.5. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rachel Moore | 4/24/2012

    " Honestly, these bored me. Maybe I'm too young to fully appreciate them because I was not interested and the only thing that kept me going was the fact that they are classic novels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenna | 4/18/2012

    " It was so random and crazy, just my kind of book. It's so mad, but we all are just a bit, aren't we? Spectacularly written. A great book for anyone who likes strange adventures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jade | 10/25/2011

    " Enjoyed popping into Alice's trippy, illogical dream word. Thanks Lewis Carroll for recreating a child's world perfectly! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Skye Griffin | 10/19/2011

    " I was really surprised at how most of the story that I new came from "through the looking glass" and not "Alice in Wonderland" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angel | 10/5/2011

    " A fantastic adventure of a young girl through dream lands only a child could imagine. One day I'll read this to my children and inspire their own magical adventures, just like it inspired mine. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kirin | 9/18/2011

    " I liked a little bit "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gina | 5/17/2011

    " This story has no plot, and no structure. It seems almost like random thoughts going through the author's head in no organized manner. The only reason I kept reading was because it was crazy to watch Carrol's ideas unfold. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherry | 5/2/2011

    " Lewis Carroll is just sooooooooo imaginative! I love the whole book; it definitely is a classic. There's so many creative poems in them, and the whole plot sucks the reader into the story. I really wish that Alice's adventures would never end! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jed | 4/18/2011

    " Not as good as Alice in Wonderland, but still delightful. The poetry in "Looking Glass" is better though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Casey | 4/8/2011

    " This book wasn't as strange as the first, but it also felt slower, to me. Not that this book was awful. I loved the poetry in it, and it seems that there is more direction in this story.

    Probably not a book I'll ever read again, but one worth reading at least once. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cory | 4/7/2011

    " Much better than Alice in Wonderland, which I liked, too. I had forgotten that I read large portions of this in my Logic class in college. Very fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia | 4/4/2011

    " Wonderfully illustrated and full of awesome colour! I loved th old style even though at times I didn't understand the book at all. I sure that the written version would add to my interest. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mary | 4/4/2011

    " This book is just marginally better than Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. I'm just not taken with Carroll's style. He had a good imagination too bad he was such a bad writer. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sean | 4/2/2011

    " Hated it. Got about a third of the way through it and bailed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yixin | 3/25/2011

    " We read this book on the class. "

About the Author
Author Lewis Carroll

Lewis Carroll was the pen name of Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832–1898), English author, mathematician, and photographer. One of eleven children of a scholarly country parson, he studied mathematics at Oxford, obtained a university post, and then was ordained as a deacon but found true success with his masterpiece, Alice’s Adventures Under Ground, now known as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, which originated as a story told to a young friend, Alice Liddell, during a boating trip on the Thames. Among his other works are Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There, The Hunting of the Snark, and Jabberwocky.
